Sales Differentiation : 19 Powerful Strategies to Win More Deals at the Prices You Want - Unabridged
About this item
To win deals at the prices you want, the needed strategy is differentiation. Most executives think marketing is the sole source of differentiation, but sales differentiation presents an untapped opportunity to create meaningful value and stand out from the competition.
Sales Differentiation presents nineteen easy-to-implement concepts to help salespeople win deals while protecting margin. These concepts are applicable to any salesperson in any industry and are based on the foundation that how you sell, not just what you sell, differentiates you.
The book’s “what you sell” section helps salespeople and executives identify what their true differentiators are, determine the right circumstances to share them, and develop a strategy to position them in a compelling way with buyers.
In every stage of the seller-buyer interaction, opportunities exist for differentiation in how you sell, such as how to creatively get in the door with buyers who say they are happy, shape buyer decision criteria aligned with your differentiators, turn a buyer’s request for references into a way to stand out from the competition, and much more!
Mediocre salespeople say what they sell is the best. Top salespeople position different and lead their clients to say best without them ever uttering the word.
